I have a realy BAAAD problem. :thumbsup:

I don't exactly remeber when it started doing it, but I don't care. It needs to be stopped.

My computer freezes at random times. Very bad times, when I don't need it to stop working. (Well, I never do. Being a hardcore Toontown fan, all of my "work" is important.)
Not just "Blahblah.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close" or extreme re-buffering, without warning, it just STOPS. No audio is heard, the mouse can't move, the screen doesn't move, and nothing will EVER happen. I have to manually re-start the computer. BUT, it ONLY happens when the internet connection is ENABLED.

I do have Web-Nexus pop ups, but the freezing has been happening for three years, even if Norton anti-adware was on.
I mean, I have a LOT of bad stuff on my computer that won't go away.

My XP computer is begging of you. Nah, actually it's on their side by now.

I think you need to get it clean before anything and probably post a HJT log (since it sounds to me like you really have not been overly concerned with fighting malware of any sort.

If I had a problem of any sort with my system, I would start with a check of Event Viewer. I don't have malware problems.

What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

My next step would be to run chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console or from My Computer.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265

Step 3 would be a defrag.
